View from the Bridge: The #1 reason why employees quit their manager

August 22nd, 2017

A WORD FROM THE TOP
As we approach the last quarter of 2017 for many it’s a time to reflect on where they want their careers/businesses to be.

Historically it can be a time when people think about change (think start of a new school year). This is when leaders need to pay extra attention to their employees as they may make the decision to move if they are not happy in their current situation. The article below provides some great insights on why you need to lead with your employees as your #1 priority.

Some of the best leadership is happening at companies like Amazon, Google and Microsoft. Please check out the information on the upcoming workshop we are co-presenting called “Agile Innovation for Leaders” below. It’s definitely a “do not miss” opportunity!

Enjoy the last lazy days of summer!

Warm regards,

WHY DO EMPLOYEES QUIT THEIR MANAGERS? HERE’S THE NO. 1 REASON IN A SHORT SENTENCE

Reversing this problem is so simple, and yet it’s so hard to find in most managers.

If I were to sit down at a coffee shop with leadership gurus John C. Maxwell, Ken Blanchard, and Simon Sinek–who have collectively sold a gazillion best-selling leadership books–and ask them this question, do you know what they would tell me?

Gentlemen, give me the bottom line, once and for all: What’s the real reason people quit their managers, exactly?

I imagine Ken and John chuckling over their lattes before answering, as they’ve probably been asked this question an equal gazillion of times, since this is what they have written about over four decades. Sinek, the newer kid on the block, will probably give you that confident smirk under his spectacles, not say anything, and lift up a copy of Leaders Eat Last in his hand.
